Spring is finally here on my side of the world. Flowers, rain, fresh rain, birds, Earth fragrance. Nature is having a party loaded with beauty.
The first flowers in my garden are tulips, my favourite spring flowers.
The public gardens in my neighbourhood have lots of them, each one prettier than the other. It’s such a blessing for my eyes and soul to look at them, stop and take a photo (or more than one). These few minutes of pleasure are like meditation.
mouthwatering blue a nature’s delicacy sumptuous berries
Breakfast anyone? With the arrival of spring all the fresh and delicious berries start to show up at the stores. I enjoy to ate a handful of them early morning, it’s like I’m gifting myself with a load of antioxidants.
Happy Spring everyone! We are still freezing here in my city in Canada, but last week I saw the first signs of spring while visiting New York City. Those tiny purple flowers on the ground made me smile.
Tanka Tuesday this week is a theme prompt: Fire and Water, below is my poem where I’ve chosen sunshine for fire and icy for water. Hope you enjoy it!
midday early spring
sunshine warming up my face
the ground still icy
mixed feelings, blending moments
losing the mind between thoughts
the Earth is turning
mindfulness is the answer
finding the purpose
my favorite corner in the backyard. it’s unbelievable that the summer solstice is almost here. i’m trying to be mindful and to set a few priorities before the summer starts. i want to enjoy the summer doing meaningful things for me, and not to let the daily business spoils it.
